Creating new occasions for thankfulness

Christians have plenty to thank God for: food on the table, clothes on their backs and a church to attend with fellowship friends, to name a few. Even so, life is not easy. However, the promise of Scripture is that if Christians cry out to the Lord in their adversity, God will respond, providing new occasions for thankfulness. Luke A. Powery, dean of the chapel at Duke University; the Rev. Delesslyn of Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church in Memphis; and Sharon Fuller of BOSS Ministries have collaborated to provide a rich set of resources to stimulate worship and preaching on Thanksgiving from an African American perspective, available on the African American Lectionary website.
